Adventure Activities Awaits You


Mt Manaslu (8,163m)

40 Days Autumn, Spring & Summer Nepal

Mt. Manaslu, 8,161m located 64km away from the Annapurna I, is the eighth highest mountain in the World.  The name of this mountain is derived from the Sanskrit word “Manasa” meaning “the Mountain of Spirit”. Lying in the ridges of the Mansiri Himal in the Gorkha District, Mt. Manaslu is quite challenging and requires proper training, climbing experience and preparation before actually heading to summit it. The Mountain is surrounded by Ngadi Chuli, Himal Chuli, and Baudha. The Larkya La, a glacial saddle lies to the North while The Ganesh Himal and the Budhi Gandaki Gorge lie on the East side. On the west reside the Marshyangdi Khola with the Annapurna Range and to the south lies the beautiful Gorkha town. There are six identified routes to the Summit because of the topographically favorable long ridges and glaciated valleys along the route, among which the south face is considered the most difficult to conquer.

One can experience the variations in the climatic zones from the tropical and sub-tropical zones, the temperate zones, the sub alpine zone, the alpine zone and the arctic zone within the range of the altitude from about 600 meters to 8,163m at the summit. Passing through the small villages resided by ethnic groups, the diverse landscapes and vegetations, the floras and faunas, rivers streams and glaciated valleys gives the complete package of an adventurous journey in the wilderness and pristine nature.

The first survey of the peak was made by a Japanese Expedition in 1952 while the first summit was made in 1956 by the Japanese Team. This is one reason why Manaslu is called “the Japanese Mountain”.
